What's the World Up to?
 
Hi,

It's me, that one guy that shows up once a blue moon. Yesterday I checked back on the site, and ZOMG there were over 850,000 spam threads. I managed to move all the spam threads to a private forum for now. However deleting them will take me several months.

I'm not even sure what I want to do with this site and the others. I'm an old fogey and lost all my drive and motivation. I wish I was 18 again and willing to make this site and others better. It seems many of the members have left, and probably only a few check back. I'm sorry I failed everyone.

However I have at least one last battle left in me. So in the coming days I'm planning on upgrading the system so that it stops all this crazy spam. Spam bots are getting way too sophisticated for this old bulletin system. I have disabled registration for now in hopes of slowing them down. I really wish to preserve all these great posts and memories that have collected over the years. I made a lot of great friends that were willing to share their joy and sorrow with me through these forums. I want to thank everyone for that. That's why I'm willing to keep these forums up as long as possible, even if no one posts in them.

As for what comes up after the forum update, I'm not positive....

If anyone is out there, What have you been up to?

:O nice to see this place resurrected. I still play Flyff, member of Adrenaline. Before we de-merged, we were top contenders with Synaesthesia for TS, winning in Flaris or Darkon all the time.. Now that we de merge the game feels stale, but now i farm QI in my free time instead for quick cash.

Cant get into UserCP and pages here load really slow.

I was testing some stuff. Running NGINX for a little bit to see what happen. I think I messed up somewhere and caused the server to freeze.

Hi there Tor! We all kinda failed though, no one thought to check and clear the spam on xvindictus till it crashed this site and by then it was kinda too late.
